 A Twitter user named Prince Michael Ehimen said, "This is so Insulting to those that have been heard Hostage and at the mercy of these territories. How dare the minister charge citizen to defend themselves against RPGs and AK47, And instead of proscribing this vagabonds as TERRORIST they sugarcoat the names to Bandits." 

@kompletefotos attacked the Minister saying, "When we have incompetent people at the helms of affairs, we will continue to hear this type of senseless talks. In a country where we do not bear arms, we are not trained in any form of combat or defense yet we are being asked to stand up to those who are using AK 47."
